When I saw this light, I immediately knew it was one I wanted to see in person. Knowing it's made by JETBeam made it even more appealing; I've reviewed a bunch of their lights and typically really like them. I liked this one for it's shape, to be honest, but as a biker it's nice to have a dedicated light made by a reputable company.
I've been getting more Lumintop lights lately and that's something I'm pleased with! They make high quality lights, and fit some nice categories. This is the ODL20C, a 26650 thrower, with built in charging! Read on!
Nitecore has a new lantern out, with some unusual features. This is the LA30, which has an internal pouch cell (lipo), and can also run off 2 AA sized cells, too. It's a nice combo, and has red and white emitters, too!
This is a light I'd never have asked for but got in a package with another light (The UT25). I liked the UT25 just fine, and in fact have liked other Nitefox lights just fine too. This is an unusual light from their line; let's see how it stacks up.
I've handled a few Nitefox lights (here are those reviews). Generally I've been impressed especially at their cost. The UT25 is one of the newer offerings. A dual switch 'tactical' light. Here's the review!
Here's another Nitecore headlamp; GearBest sent this one over. It's a [multi] emitter light with an indicating switch and red secondary. Most importantly, it's a high CRI light!
Rofis is one of those brands I haven't known for long, but I've by-and-large liked a whole lot. Recently I had the MR70, and that's going to be my go-to travel light. Rofis has a thing for making lights with rotating heads, and this is another example. This version, however, adds on-board charging!
I've had a run of keychain lights lately. And today I have another one by MecArmy. I recently reviewed the SGN7, and today it's the SGN3, a much smaller keychain light. This one has three emitters (white, red, and uv).
Olight's released another headlamp, in the same vein as the HS2, which I've previously reviewed here. I liked the HS2 (still have it and use it often), but it's a very runner-specific headlamp. The H16 Wave is an interesting development, because it's adds a "Wave," 'hands free' feature. Let's see how it all works for this light!
Olight recently released a 10 Year Anniversary light. I don't imagine this will become a normal production light, and as such that's how I'll evaluate it. It's an unusual keychain light, with glass front and back, an integrated cell, and on-board charging. It's the Olight Ion, and here are my thoughts!
Olight has iterated the X7, and added charging. I reviewed the X7 ages ago (back in 2016), and was generally pleased. Let's see how (if?) Olight has improved on this venerable design, by adding recharging and an indicating side switch.
Seems that I've been on a keychain light kick lately, and here's another one! Well, in some sense, anyway. This is more of a rectangular light with unusual features.... Also my first MecArmy light in basically forever (the other being the PT16, which I really liked.) Read on for more info and thoughts about this MecArmy SGN7!
I've long been a fan of the Nitecore MH20/MH20GT format, and Nitecore has a new similar light in the series. It's the MH23, and Nitecore sent one over for review. (And to be completely honest I'm pumped to have it.)
Another JETBeam with on-board charging! This time in 18650 format. I've already reviewed the similar AA/14500 light. I was excited to test this one out, because it's also got an emitter I've never tested!
This is the second (and final for now) Nitefox review. This is an 18650 light with dual switches, and an indicating switch. Nice light; read on for more!
Rofis is a new (ish) brand to me, and tends to bring new and interesting things to the table. This is a reasonably small 26650 light, with a Cree XHP70.2, on-board charging, and can act as a powerbank! That's a lot of features, so let's see how well they actually work.
Nitecore has a few headlamps out now and this one is an interesting entry - it has three emitters. A main emitter, a secondary NW emitter, and a red emitter. All powered by a single 18650 and in a reasonably small package.
There's a new light on the block from Thrunite, and I weaseled a review unit out of them (just kidding, they sent it willingly!!). I'm excited to have this one, because there's not a ton of info out there on it yet, and it's nice to have an early copy!
As far as I can tell this is a fairly new release from Simon. It's the Convoy S9, which is an 18650 light with on-board charging and an indicating side e-switch. An interesting entry! I was excited to try it, and GearBest sent one out for review.
Here's a tiny Klarus light, rivaling the Olight S1 Mini in size - easily one of (if not the smallest 16340 light available. This one's different, however, as it has an aspheric lens. While it's true that these might not have all the uses of a TIR or reflector lights, don't discount it too quickly; these are greatly useful little lights. Read on for more!
